I may not be understanding your question.
Are you asking why there is not a separate forum section for pistols?
Anyone can start a separate thread on pistols (or any other air gun related subjects), but you would ordinarily place it in either the general air gun gate (forum section) or in a gate specific to its country of origin.

hi yes thatís what Iím asking why we donít have a separate place for just pistols this way we would not need to sift through things that donít pertain to pistols.

I would say the reason is the same as why there is no separate general gate for rifles. The forum is more or less broken into brand and platform. Breaking it down further into rifles and pistols would greatly increase the number of gates and sub gates because it wouldn't be long before members would want the pistol gates broken into brands and platforms.
I find Google to be the fastest way to search a specific topic or gun on the GTA... just include "gateway to airguns' in your search parameters.

That very question was asked back a year and a half or so ago and general consensus of both admins and mods was that they weren't going to add  another Gate just for Pistols. Lack of moderators, then trying to figure out how to find and move every thread ever started about them would have been a huge task to try and pull off if even possible, plus moderators here are already stretched pretty thin and have multiple Gates to monitor.

 Could start a thread titled pistols, or crosman pistols or the like, it may just catch on, like the Xisco Sentry Fan club, or what did you eat threads have.  ;)
